  1. I tried to install custom brushes on my MacBook Air. Version 1.7.2. I keep getting an error message that won’t allow me to install them. I’ve tried a couple different file formats. Any help would be great.
  2. I'm new to Affinity Designer and trying to create custom image brushes. The process seems very straightforward, but I can't seem to get it to work properly for my brushes. In my screen shot, I've illustrated the pattern I'm trying to make into an image brush. From what I've read and seen in video tutorials, the process is to make a black background with the area to be the actual brush white. I saved my image as a .PNG file. Done. Now, when I create the image brush everything appears to have imported properly. I sliced up the image to make the center repeat. That appears fine, as well. The problem I'm running into and can't resolve is how the brush always draws a black background and the white area will not change to a color no matter which color I select. I'm at a total loss as to what to do to correct this problem. I've tried removing the black background and making the brush white with a transparent background. That produces a brush that only paints in white. I'm sure there is something simple I'm missing, but I can't pinpoint exactly what it is.

    Designer Custom Brushes Bug

    When I make a custom design, to be used as a brush and be applied to a stroke, it always seems to very glitchy when resizing or zooming in and out. This also happens when moving the object, or just moving the screen, as well as after the object has been moved and just sitting there. I did a screen capture and posted it to YouTube so you can see what I'm talking about better. Also showing the same design in Illustrator. https://youtu.be/CMapiGaZDDo This design was made in Designer and I used the same file to make a custom brush in Illustrator to do the same thing. -Robert Blackadar -Macbook Pro Retina 15 inch Mid 2015 -macOS Sierra 10.12.4 -Affinity Designer 1.5.5 -Adobe Illustrator 19.2.2
  4. When I was using photoshop I was able to buy Kyle Webster custom brushes. These don't work in Affinity. What do I use for custom brushes? Are there natural looking brushes that come with affinity or that can be purchased? I'm really concerned about how I'm going to draw, paint and erase to look like art rather than computer obvious stuff.
